    There are heat panels esp. designed for birds that you can purchase. However, in a pinch, put a cover on the cage for the night and have a desk lamp aimed at the cage. That will give the bird a break from light itself, but still provide heat (and also from any draft). Just make certain the fabric doesn't touch the light bulb (fire hazard).
    Thanks all ! I appreciate the replies.
    Thanks Rue, I have a skirt around the bottom of the cage and a full wrap for the top.I also have an old lamp directly under the cage with a 60watt bulb for heat.I did what I could.
    I have a new spot in the living room for my next venture.Less drafty than the kitchen area.I just wish they weren't so sloppy with everything and I sure hopo they don't squwack at the TV.
    We only rent the house so the amount of work thats needed ain't coming out of my pocket.There is not near enough insulation in the walls for the location of the house.Thats a lot more than cosmetic work unfortunately.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. Sorry for your loss
    We can be as honest as we are ignorant. If we are, when asked what is beyond the horizon of the known, we must say that we do not know.

    Have you considered having an electric heater and placing it near your bird....if you get another? They are pretty nice units now, thermostats, blowers and auto turn-off settings on them should they get tipped over. They can keep a whole room a nice even temp. I would not invest in a parrot unless you can regulate your room temps better, really. No drafts on them at all......like near a window, etc.

    I have a new spot set up for when I get another.
    I was just trying to avoid having all that gravel in the carpet.
    Thanks for the tips Lady Hobbs!

    Get that cover that sits under the cage that catches it. Helps a lot.
